While the book made for interesting reading (I have a 15 month son), I did not like how inflexible it came across. For example, it would say at 8 months, your baby should be doing this...If my child weren't doing whatever it was at that exact time, and I didn't know better, the book would have scared the crap out of me, making me think something was horribly wrong with my child. Now I have not read the entire book, as I am reading it as my child grows up.

It used it for a paper at Uni, had good info. Bit cheap because the pages are made of a low grade paper.

I continue looking for and reading information on Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) combined with ADHD. This book talks about a lot of the behaviors I am experiencing with my five year old grandson. (He does have a medical diagnosis of both within clinical range) Life is challenging enough on the second go around of raising a grandchild. One with ODD is extremely challenging. This book, if nothing else, is encouraging and the use of real life humor is just what I need on some of "those" days.
